HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam Football Federation (VFF) has temporally banned defender Nguyễn Tăng Tiến of Hoàng Anh Gia Lai for a match because of his violent action in a V.League match last week.
During the match on April 5, Tiến, in an attempt to take the ball, trampled on Hà Nội FC’s midfielder Đỗ Duy Mạnh’s leg.
Tiến received a red card for the foul and was automatically banned for the next two matches.
It meant the 24-year-old will be sidelined for at least three matches. The final decision will be given after the VFF’s Discipline Department receives the test result of Mạnh’s injury.
Tiến also incurred a fine from his club as owner Đoàn Nguyên Đức decided to place him on the bench until the end of V.League’s first leg on June 13. — VNS
